A humble request for an extension


#1

Hello! We would humbly like to request if it is possible for a small extension to the tracking competition. We, as well as others we know competing in the competition, thought that we did not have enough time to finalize our results (especially as close as it is to Thanksgiving and many of us are traveling) and as such could produce far, far better results if the deadline was even extended to Friday. We believe it wouldn’t hurt the competition either, as there weren’t as many competitive entries in the 3D tracking portion (we assume to be for a very similar reason), and humbly ask that the board consider providing us an extension. Also, we believe that the extension would still provide ample time between submission and NeurIPS to evaluate, and think that it would be raise the bar of competition greatly.
